Today’s minor transactions and gameday callups heading into Week 12 of the NFL season:
- Designated to return from IR: LB Jordan Kunaszyk
- Elevated: S Sheldrick Redwine
Las Vegas Raiders
- Waived: LB Jaylon Smith
Los Angeles Chargers
- Signed to active roster: OLB Andrew Farmer
New York Giants
New York Jets
- Waived: T Dennis Kelly
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Smith’s tenure on the Raiders lasted about three weeks after he was signed off of the Saints’ practice squad. The Raiders immediately plugged him in hoping that he would improve a unit struggling to defend the run. After his initial game in Vegas, though, Smith was inactive for the next two games. Whether due to injuries or ineffectiveness, Smith no longer warranted a roster spot with the Raiders.
The Jets signed Kelly in the midst of a litany of offensive line injuries. Kelly is an established veteran with a good amount of starting experience, but even with all the opportunities provided due to injury, Kelly couldn’t quite crack the rotation and now finds himself without a roster spot.
